    +P ammo in concealed carry a no-no?

    I recently completed my concealed carry course. In the course the instructor stated that you should not use +P ammo in your concealed carry weapon. He stated that this makes you the "aggressor", and that if you use your weapon with +P ammo you could be charged with a crime. Any thoughts on this?

    Your instructor loaded you up with a bunch of baloney.

    His opinion could not be further from the truth. It leaves one to question what else that he taught ya'll.

    The instructor is an idiot.
    The only provision to using +p ammo is the weapon being able to handle it.

    I would have to say bull crap. Did he also say if you use anything more powerful than a 9mm that you were breaking the law too

    That would carry the same weight as the fact that the rounds were hollow points and not FMJ.

    I think I know why he said that. My instructor went out of his way to make sure we knew that we should avoid anything that might be used against us in court by a DA who wants to make a name for himself. I could see where carrying +P ammo might make it look like you were just looking for someone to shoot with more powerful ammo that the average person doesn't need.

    With that said, I don't see a problem with it. You could say the same thing about posting on firearms forums or being a member of the NRA: you're some "gun nut" just looking for a fight.

    Nothing wrong with +P ammo, so long as your firearm can handle it. Just be sure you're willing to live with any negative consequences for using it; same with carrying a firearm.

    My instructor told my class the same thing. His "thought" was in court you could be made to look like you are out to kill someone if you have higher powered ammo.

    I would find a gun friendly attorney, go for your free consultation and ask him. He will be the one you call if trouble finds you. Do as he says.

    Things gun forums have taught me:
    -Some people shoot guns other "run" them.
    -I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
    -Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
    -Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!

    If you are carrying a 9mm or smaller round, I completely disagree with the instructor. You need the extra power! If you are carrying a .44 magnum or larger, I might agree with him.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    I have been a CCW instructor for many years and I advise my students just the opposite. IMO, your instructor is practicing law without a license.

    Your instructor is a moron. Ammunition will play a minimal part of any justifiable shooting. If it wasnt justifiable, then you have far more serious things to worry about, like wearing a sports cup on your backside.........
    Many have heard the tale of ammo sending someone to jail from the friend of a second cousing who dated the girlfriend of the pizza delivery guy that lived next to the aunt of someone who went to prison because of ammo...... I have looked and I have never found a verified case of such. If you want to carry +p ammo, go for it. If not, dont. And if you ever have to argue your use of +p ammo..... just tell em you are concerned enough to give the bg a quick clean finish so they dont suffer.... wait...thats for deer hunting...
